Brandalyn Kemp

(LPCC)

About Me

I am a family and marriage counselor licensed in Ohio with over 10 years of experience working as a counselor and life coach. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.

My counseling style is warm and interactive. I use two treatment approaches CBT and Narrative Therapy. CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) is the most common one amongst therapist as it helps an individual to challenge thoughts and emotions that may lead to undesirable behaviors. I enjoy using narrative therapy as this approach helps individuals write or re-write their story to a more desirable one. As long as an individual is committed to making some changing I also make that same commitment to help in the ways that I am professionally able too.

It takes a lot of will to ask for help, but everyone needs help some time. I want to provide that to you.

I look forward to working with you!

She's thoughtful, listens, and suggests helpful strategies to manage your situation.

She’s been great so far! I enjoy being able to talk to someone. Having another black woman to talk to helps to. I love that I was able to personalize that through the app.

Brandalyn comes off as a sister to me. She listens with tuned-in ears, she gives no judgment from the "tea" I give her, offers expert advice which makes me feel like my feelings or issues matter. I appreciate her.

Great counselor, really helps me understand what I’m going though is manageable.

Brandalyn has been very sweet and kind to me, some things came up for me during our month together (personal sickness things that caused me to be less interactive) but I would still love to continue working with her in the future! ❤️

Brandalyn understands how I feel and really takes the time to make sure I understand what’s wrong. I haven’t been working with her for too long, but she made a lot of my dreaded issues slowly disappear within our first few sessions!

As much of a caseload as she has right now, she still is warm, communicative, and effective.

After just one session I recommended this service to a friend, who has also signed up and begun counseling. I told her to be very specific and honest when answering the initial questions that match you to your counselor because I felt my responses were what matched me with mine. When I first read her bio and counseling strategies I knew that she would at least be a good first attempt at finding the right person for me and I have not yet been disappointed. At first I was wary of how much the service cost, but the help I'm getting has made it completely worth it. I am in my third week and have been more productive, more conscious of my happiness, and have a good outlook for my coming progress.

I was a client of Brandy's for nearly five months. She was a huge help. I immediately felt comfortable with her and was eventually able to work through my problems with her practical solutions. She gave me the tools I needed to move on from a bad situation and get back on my feet emotionally.
